Welcome back to Summer term two
I will continue to add maths and English activities everyday along with optional topic, RE and art activities. Please feel free also to choose your own thing from the topic web if you feel you would like to.
As of Monday 1st June, I will be in school teaching one of the groups of year 1 children returning to school Monday-Thursday, however my emails will be covered by either Miss Course or Mrs Orledge so please continue to send in work.
If you would like me to see anything specific I will respond to emails every Friday on the normal contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As of 15th June, the children in the Year 2 Key workers group will have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. On those days the children may come to school in their PE kits.
Please know I am missing all the year 2 children,
Stay safe and keep smiling
Happy Easter Holidays
School will still be open for key workers but as it is the holidays there will be a break from work. I hope you enjoy the time with your families and stay well.
26.3.20 Good afternoon lovely year two children. I do hope you are having a good week. We have another excellent opportunity for you. Miss Course, our maths lead, has set up a weekly Sudoku challenge. It is differentiated, meaning it can really push you if you want a challenge. Please read the instructions first (in the document above) then strt the challenges. Gook luck!
24.3.20 Good morning - just an update. As a school, Mrs Orledge is setting a weekly art competition. If you fancy having a go see the powerpoint above. Another great idea is using espresso to revisit all the coding work we have covered this term. If you google espresso coding and press the first link, it will ask you for username and password. This is student3865 and the password is pepper.
Finally can I recommend the daily PE lesson by Joe Wicks. He streams a live workout every morning at 9am on his you tube channel. Enjoy and stay safe.
Under each date you will find daily work. Maths will include fluency, problem solving, reasoning and greater depth. Don't feel you have to do it all. It is there to try and provide work for all abilities.
There will also be a daily English task and another piece of curriculum work.
Have a go but please don't worry...these are difficult times for everyone. If you want to do extra work I have added a folder entitled extra ideas - this is of course optional. The folder entitled essentials provides a 100 square, guidance on year 2 spelling rules and questions to ask when hearing your child read.
If you would like to email me please do at email@example.com (this is a new email address) between the hours of 9am-3.15pm on school days. Please be aware if I am in school on these days the emails maybe responded to by another teacher who is not on duty.
Sending much love to you all Mrs Page

Please have a look at our Topic Web to see an overview of some of the exciting things we will get up to!
This will be handed out on a Friday and is due back on Wednesdays. The homework will be linked to what the children have been learning about that week or will prepare them for what they are about to learn.
Spellings are also handed out on Fridays ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week.
The children have been introduced to 'Times Table Rockstars' this year to practice times table fluency- please encourage your child to play on this app/website when possible. They can all now log in independently!
Please try and read with your child 5 times a week, this can be for 10 minutes whilst they settle into bed! Please remember to sign your child's reading record so we know they have read! We will continue to change books daily!
